Whether you’re planning a wedding, a party to mark a significant birthday, or a corporate event to wow your clients, you’ll want everything to run smoothly and for your guests to leave having had a wonderful time.

But event planning can be a challenge and requires a lot of organisational skill. Party planner Christina Frasers recently shared some tips for successful event organisation with Sarasota Magazine.

Among her top pieces of advice are to keep a cool head and to be resourceful when you’re planning a large-scale event.

But even if you don’t have a huge budget, that doesn’t mean your event can’t wow people. Ms Fraser said that in this instance it’s better to think about creating one standout feature that people will talk about, rather than worrying about tiny details.

“The impact and wow factor will be memorable. You want to have something that guests will talk about for years to come,” she asserted.

You might even want to help them remember the event by arranging photo booth hire in Manchester, or wherever you’re hosting your event. This can give people a personal keepsake of the day or evening. It’s a particularly good move for any event where guests wear costumes or make the effort to get dressed up nicely.

Ms Fraser’s advice could also be great if you’re planning a wedding and trying to stick to a tight budget. Thinking about the wow factor rather than the tiny details that are often overlooked by guests is a good place to start.

But there are some other simple things you can do to reduce the cost of your big day, like tie the knot in January or February rather than in the summer months, or host your ceremony on a weekday instead of the weekend.
